Promoting Diversity through Education – UnityWorks of Yakima, Washington
UnityWorks Yakima, WA
Embracing diversity expands our understanding of humanity’s oneness. Accepting differences in others leads to a more profound understanding of our “sameness,” as human beings. It uncovers our common desire to be happy, and avoid pain and sadness. This deeper knowledge and understanding creates an intimacy which binds us together.
Practical programs aimed at teaching our youth the value of uniqueness and unity empower our culture. It builds a foundation of understanding and cooperation which will produce a more harmonious future in a global society.
UnityWorks of Yakima, Washington, teaches people about the oneness of humanity, the value of diversity, and the need for unity through practical programs that educate communities, educators and students.
